The Untold History of Web 2.0

Web 2.0 and everything that came along with it has reshaped every industry it’s touched, including typography and logo design. I was compiling a list of alternative fonts for Web 2.0 when I started to wonder, “Where do all these fonts come from?”
The result is a list of 7 or so of my favorite 2.0 logos and a brief history of the fonts used to make them.

Never Give UP!!

In that dark lonesome place
between a dream dreamed
and a dream realized,
I have left a little light
for you so you will know
that someone caresand
believes in your dream.

Just where it becomes
the most darkand difficult
to find your way,there is
the light I left for you.

It will light your way,
through the doubt,
the confusion,and the fears,
It will stay with you
all the way to the realization
of your dream.

And when your dream
has come true,
please go back to that darkest place
where you have been,
And set the little light
there to give heart
to the next sweet soul
that braves the path
to his or her dreams.

Dreamers are the architects of greatness.
There wisdom lies within their souls.
Dream long enough and hard enoug
hand your dream can be attained.

Heart Prints

Whatever our hands touch...
we leavefingerprints on.
On walls, on furniture,
on door knobs,dishes and books.
As we touch we leave our identity..
Oh please where ever I go today...
help me leave heart prints.
Heart prints of compassion,
understanding and love.
Heart prints of kindness and genuine concern.

May my heart touch a lonely neighbor...
or a runaway daughter...
or an anxious mother...
or perhaps a dear friend!
I shall go out today...
to leave heart prints...and if some one should say...
"I felt your touch!"

Friendship Wish!! :-)

May there always be work for your hands to do;

May your purse always hold a coin or two;

May the sun always shine on your window pane;

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;

May the hand of a friend always be near you;

May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
